If you follow us on Instagram, you may have caught that we spent some time exploring Chicago last weekend. As close as we live to the city, we had never brought Pierogi and Gilly downtown, so it was fun to finally get out there. Our mini getaway was short, we spent less than 24 hours in Chicago, but we were still able to fit a few things in. Although, my favorite thing was...
A dog food truck! I love food trucks as much as Gilly loves bananas (that's a lot) and Pierogi loves sunbathing, so I may have broke into a happy dance as soon as we finally caught up to a certain shiny yellow truck, packed with creative dog treats. There were all sorts of baked treats in the display cases of the open truck window; bags of dried treats lined the inside of the truck wall and elsewhere inside, there was a magical freezer full of...Fi-Yo cups - yes, frozen yogurt for dogs! The amount of (ironically) mouthwatering treats on display was overwhelming. I must have looked over the menu three different times and I scanned the display cases up and down with wide eyes until I felt excited little paws remind me to place an order.
We ended up grabbing a Chicago hot dog cookie, a doggie pizza (!) homemade jerky and two cups of Turkey Dinner frozen yogurt - the featured flavor. Someone's eyes were bigger than her dogs' stomachs ;) It was windy while we visited Chicago, but we still wanted to take a peek at the Lake, so we headed towards the lakefront for a treat picnic and then called it a day...
Chicago friends, what are some of your favorite things to do around the city with your dog?
